Moist on Windows

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”

I woke up to the sound of raindrops as they fall down my balcony, I woke up to the sight of dark skies & wind.There’s just something about the rain that gives me a sense of comfort, though I was disturbed by waffling thoughts on today’s agenda. I checked up my nightstand where my digital alarm clock stood, it read “July 12, 7:30 am” however the gloominess made me feel it was still night time, with the cold rush on my finger I drew out through the moist building up on my window – it looked great I just had to take some shots.

The view out my window, the buildings were a blurr and the wind was intense. What a gloomy morning huh? I decided to ‘draw’ my feelings out on my moist frosted window. It looked awesome – i just had to get it through. I had McDonald’s for breakfast partnered up with some hot chocolate. (Yum!) and I set off to work – I have written two poems & I have sent in my Magazine Correspondent Entry to CandyMag.coml. I am planning to put up my written output on this & showcase to y’all my persuasive skills. Hoping for the best on these projects, stay tuned!

It was our first week of school and yet it was numbered down to 2 days of school due to the storms that come to my rather not-so-hot-country-anymore that result to unwanted class suspension. To be honest, I was looking forward to school, I mean hey, we had FOUR months of summer, I need education. Really though. So I have 5 days of ‘extended summer’ – amazing. I did all kinds of stuff, from chatting with my friends, watching movies back to back ( X-Files: I want to believe, Unfriended, Inside Out, The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants ++) writing some poetry, to just eating my boredom out.

Club select- I’ve been going through this little booklet lately given to us during our first day. I have picked out three clubs which were so different from last school year I decided to go more sporty, yet tryouts await me. (Fitness, Volleyball, & Shakers, I’m ready for ya!) Looking at my schedule overwhelms me with tryouts that end at 5, yet I come to wonder what time I’d be even going home. I have so much plans for this SY, I hope this year is my year!

Even my dog Cashew decides to zone out due to the weather. How adorable, I just love getting pictures of him.

KEIventures: ETC’s PLL Viewing Party

“Got a secret can you keep it, swear this one you’ll save better lock it in your pocket taking this one to the grave.”

10401526_1127594357254605_8842845018681640938_nIf you guys know me, you’d be sure that I fancy and endear Pretty little liars so much – in fact it has been a part of me for so long it even seems protracted. Bleating & chortling at many ways I always find my way back to this show no matter how zonked I am, it just brings me the comical yet thrilling idea of pure bliss. After I heard about ETC’s PLL Viewing Party I was sure I had to go, I did all I could and it looked like i was born under a lucky star –  I was invited.

We were welcomed by the beautiful people of ETC – they were oh so lovely. As the doors to the event opened, a smile started to form on my face as I looked around, the vibe of the PLL Army has given me pure excitement. All the posters, and the standees – ugh, breathtaking.

There were donuts (Hey, Krispy Kreme) some drinks, and fun games! With my luck, we were asked to participate in the Trivia game, and I guess this was where my inner PLL fan outburst from me and my friends. I was enlivened – yet at times I was brought by my nervousness that even if I knew the answer I’d stand there hesitating. The easy round went by like a rocket and we didn’t get any questions properly – except when the other team answered incorrectly I knew it was my chance. It escalated quickly and I answered pretty much a handful of stunning questions – hath the fate of us winning! Here’s what I got: – some shirts, ETC notepad, a cute lunchbox, and my favorite – a PLL poster, not to mention that I won the raffle too – an overnight stay at the Picasso.

(Meet my PLL Viewing Party Buddies – Me, Trisha, & Gia)

I could say that this has been one of my monthly highlights, Pretty Little Liars was my roller coaster ride for how many years now – I have been a fan of the book series even before the show happened so I can call myself an intense fan and thanks to ETC  I have loved the show even more more so through this wonderful private viewing party they organized. It ended with us watching the latest episode all together – simply pleasing.

I would like to thank ETC Channel for making this event happen and for inviting me to this wonderful event of theirs. Want to experience something as fun as this?
